Not so fast...
While it is a fairly well constructed game, I feel that the standard for these types of nu-retro iOS games has been raised quite high already. The Hook trilogy by Rocketcat Games being the prime gold-standard example. League of Evil is another good entry, & also very close in terms of approach, but LoE is the superior game to Mos. I don't feel as if the controls are as tight as LoE, or another excellent platformer, Pizza Boy. I must also say that the desire to emulate a retro look is half-hearted, decent, but that's it. Another recent iOS entry called Karoshi (check it out, great game) has the same overall look, but that game's charm easily negates the lame 'monitor lines' effect, something Mos attempts, but the charm just isn't there for me. Again, Rocketcat being the leader in iOS nu-retro platformers and Jeff Minter's two instant iOS masterpieces of old/new mash-ups (Minotaur Rescue & Minotron) make half-hearted attempts like Mos Speedrun look like the two bit imitators that they are. Sounds harsh, but Mos is simply not nearly as good as many other available titles.

Great!
I downloaded this game on a whim and I love it! The controls are genius and the stages are all well constructed! Keep up the great work I would also like to see multitasking added.

Well executed platforming
A great buy if you like fast-paced platforming. There is no story or adventure of which to speak here (no problem), and the overall visual presentation is a little TOO simple and lacking in character for my tastes (small problem), but the gameplay is top-notch. This is definitely a "gamer's game," which may or may not be for you.

Get this game now!
Amazing game - very polished and I love the fact that it has different modes for controls (rather than just one control scheme). On top of that, the soundtrack gets you really pumped!

5 star game
It's definitely 5 star game, but it gets 4 for now, until multitask implemented. Totally recommended game, i was waiting for it! Bravo!
